Abstract

At Laser Undulator Compact Source (LUCX) at KEK, we designed and made a new RF Gun with high mode separation of 8.6 MHz and high Q value as compared to earlier guns. This paper presents fabrication details, low power measurements and tuning procedures followed in making the gun cavity. We also discuss in detail, experimentation done using this gun and show the measurement results. Currently we produce 100 bunch per train but we plan to go for 300 or more bunch per train operation. This will make possible to have higher charge available for laser-beam collisions to generate high flux soft X-rays by Inverse Compton Scattering at our setup.
